Memories from yesterday


I cut the "h" off the end of this so that it would match Savanna's name!  :)

Candy and I saw this sign first when we parked:  "Fabulous Finds Under $20" and we were so excited!

I love these little stones but not enough to buy them all, so I just took a photo.  I said to Candy, "let's take photos of a bunch of stuff we want but aren't going to spend our money on..." So we did. 


 [sigh]...

 Candy and I  both LOVE this t-shirt.  It says, "walk a day in my flip flops."

Is this t-shirt not HYSTERICAL?  In case you can't read it it says, "I have the body of a God.  Unfortunately, it's Buddha."  Bahahahahha!!!

A dog store...all things dogs...made me miss the babies...


Okay so I am officially in love with these purses.  They have multiple animal prints AND pink.

Watching taffy being made...

Love the horse and carriage rides all over this town...

Love walking along the river...watching boats, visiting shops, sipping ice cold lemonade.  As far as shopping  -- I looked a lot and laughed a lot, but bought nothing.  I decided to wait and if I really want something I'll go back and get it before we leave.  (Just say no to impulse buying!)  If anything I'll probably go back and get one of the purses.  :)

We had a great day, all day.  Candy and I sat in the back on the five hour trip here and watched a movie, and laughed and cried.  We went shopping on the river once we got here and ate dinner at a place our friend Mike Gibson recommended called, "The Olde Pink House".    It was truly amazing.  I even went and wrote a review about our experience on City Search!  I was that impressed.  I would definitely go back there to eat...it totally rocked. 

We're spending today on one of the trolley tours, looking at historical sites, mostly gorgeous homes.  Yes, it's hotter than hot, but I just love doing this.  So grateful to my babe for deciding to bring me here.  Love doing all this stuff, but really love being with him!

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

Why You Should Never Hijack a Comment Thread
Social media etiquette 101

One surefire way to kill your influence in social media and wear out your welcome fast is to become involved in derailing somebody’s comment thread with your own agenda. Networking and hijacking aren’t the same thing. It’s surprising how many people don’t understand that this is a guarantee for tearing down a platform as quickly as you build it. Passion is good, even necessary. I appreciate people's zeal for their personal core values. What is not appreciated is the attempt at a redirection of a comment thread when the comment has little or nothing to do with an original post or is twisted at best. Social media provides ample opportunity for all of us to share what’s important to us on our own platform. Eliciting others’ responses and developing connections largely depends on our ability to communicate and compel. Some people are open to receiving private communication from others although they aren’t always able to answer personally or at length. But hijacking a comment threa
